To be fair, Mother's Day is one of any restaurant's busiest days of the year, since Mother is usually a family's primary cook and deserves to eat out. That said, they should hire enough help to handle what they know always comes. The food is good German and other European fare: goulash, sauerbraten, curry sausage, hot German potatoes, spaetzle, sweet n sour red cabbage, assorted cold cuts, cheeses, omelets made to order, fresh fruits, carved roast beef. Champagne comes with the meal. Desserts are only cake, and no sugar free. Noodles in sumptuous gravy with mushrooms a la stroganoff. At this price range, there are usually more choices in every category, but German is a specialty here. Our water and coffee came soon, but champagne wasn't served until we asked for it, nearly 1/2 hour later, albeit cheerfully and apologetically. The servers they had were good; they just needed more of them at 11:30AM, right in the middle of their brunch hours. We will return.

We ended up at Alpine Village for Mother's Day Brunch because every place else was booked. It was a pleasant surprise. We got there early before it opened and there quite a line but we did have reservations. When we got in we were seated right away and were served complimentary orange juice. Each paying adult also got 2 beers included in the meals. They had a buffet setup on the dance floor. There were cold items: salad & fresh fruit, hot table of schnitzel, cabbage, bratwurst, goulash, bacon, eggs. There was cooked to order omelettes & waffles, a carving station & then desserts. We were there early so everything was fresh. The line did get long and they replenished items as quickly as people ate. Overall a good meal with all the German specialties. Our server Karen was awesome, there was also complimentary champagne for the mom's and she kept filling our orange juice and champagne. Would go back again.

The food was delicious but the best part about lunch is the German band. I had a craving for German food but the have a great menu with other types of food. The hostess and server were very good
